GoPlan presents users with yet another way to manage their projects and collaborate online. The internet has proven to be a valuable resource for organizations and businesses to manage projects and get quick input from team members and other participants. GoPlan has created a long list of features that allow users to work more efficiently and save time through quick information sharing and powerful functions. Other tasks, from file sharing to scheduling and organization, can also be completed with the help of GoPlan. Rather than visiting multiple online resources to perform all of these activities, users can turn to a single website.Show more screenshots »
GoPlan was originally created by We Break Stuff, a design, development and product strategy company. The goal was to put together a collaboration and project management tool that We Break Stuff could utilize internally. After experiencing just how valuable their newly created tool was, and identifying the needs of other businesses and organizations, the founders decided to make GoPlan accessible to more people. This was done by turning their once internal tool into a product that was available commercially online. Today, GoPlan still serves the same functions as it did when it was originally designed for We Break Stuff, but does so for many companies and groups.
Many online applications and websites present numerous tools that can make collaboration and project management easier. However jumping from one site to the next can become difficult, especially when the project requires interaction from many people. GoPlan brings together all of those necessary tools into a single resource. That way, the entire team or group can be directed to one website and access all the features they need.
GoPlan offers user a very basic, clean web layout and attractive color scheme that doesn’t draw attention away from the content and functionality of the site. The colorful green and blue logo makes the site welcoming to all, including small business owners and non profit organizations on a budget. The navigation menus are logically placed and make it easy for a new user to navigate the site and get to the tools they need.
Visitors who would like to become GoPlan members can click the white “Plans and Sign Up” link at the top right hand corner of the homepage. This will direct the user to the three available membership types. A fourth membership type is available, but not as prominently displayed. A light grey bar just under the three plans includes a short link that allows users to register for free if they prefer. After choosing the plan type, users are asked to enter company details, including a business name and alias, as well as a country location. Next, the user is asked to fill in their individual details, including a name, alias, email address, password, and time zone. After confirming the plan type using the drop down box, users can complete the registration process.
GoPlan offers users four plan options that can easily fit into any budget. The first is the free membership, which is ad supported. Free memberships can manage up to three projects and include two users and two collaborators. The Startup plan costs around $10 per month and upgrades to include 15 projects, five users, 15 collaborators, and 10 GBs of storage space. The mid range Professional plan costs around $35 and raises that to 40 projects, unlimited users and collaborators, and 25 GBs of storage. The most expensive plan is the Unlimited, which costs around $80 per month and upgrades to unlimited projects and storage.
The features found on GoPlan are ideal for anyone who has to manage a project of almost any size. Through GoPlan, other team members or collaborators can be brought in without infringing on their daily schedules. The four account options, which begin at free, make it easy to fit GoPlan into a tight budget.
